Ways to pay your mortgage

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

There are several different ways to pay your monthly mortgage payments or to make a contribution to any outstanding arrears that may have accrued.

If your payment is not received in the month it is due, this could lead to a monthly arrears charge of £30 being debited to your account and your credit rating being affected.

If you pay by Direct Debit or Internal Transfer (paying your monthly mortgage payment from a Skipton savings account) then you may receive 0.25% discount on your mortgage interest rate. If you pay by any other method the discount will not apply.

Phone

You can make debit card payments by calling Skipton Direct on 0345 850 1711. Please note that we do not accept credit card payments.

Direct Debit

If you don't currently pay by Direct Debit, setting up a Direct Debit for mortgage payments means you may be eligible for a 0.25% discount on your current interest rate (terms and conditions apply - please ask us for further details). If the Direct Debit is subsequently cancelled, the discount will be removed.

Payment dates available are the 1st, 10th, 12th, 15th and 20th of the month and Direct Debits can be set up over the telephone by calling our Credit Management team on 0345 850 1766* or by completing a Direct Debit mandate (PDF). All payments set up for the 1st of the month will be collected on the third working day. Customers with a payment date after the 1st of the month may incur additional daily interest.

Internal Transfer

An Internal Transfer enables you to pay your monthly mortgage payment from your Skipton savings account. A transfer is made automatically from the savings account and is set up following a request from you either via telephone by calling 0345 850 1766 or in writing to the below address. if you are requesting this in writing then please include the Skipton savings account number you wish to pay from, your Skipton mortgage account number and ensure the letter is signed.

Internal Transfers can be set up to collect on any day in the month up to the 26th of the month. You may receive 0.25% discount on your mortgage interest rate for paying by internal transfer (terms and conditions apply – please ask us for further details) NOTE: Internal Transfers CANNOT be made from a Skipton savings account where withdrawals are not allowed.

A payment initiated after the cut-off point on a Friday will normally be received on the following Monday.
